God is so great! My girls are doing wonderful in college! Tajah had a beautiful gospel concert
this evening! She sang beautifully and gave a heartfelt testimony! God moves mountains!

We went to visit Jazz last night and was able to watch her team compete! They won! Yeah! Go SJSU!

My girls are together tonight and enjoying that sisterly time to bond!

Hello Wednesday

Good evening

What a great Wednesday!
The sun was shining brightly and the weather
was great!

I have an amazing job! My Jesus is a great provider!
He has allowed me to see the light of a new day!
Play soccer with my students, giggle at their jokes,
and have fun teaching at the same time.

Athritis has no place in my life! I do not claim it and
I do not own it!

I love being me and being able to move and not stress
over arthritis!

Thank you Jesus for saving me!
Until next time plz pray for me
and I will continue to pray for you!
God bless

Loving the rain!

Good evening!

Can I tell u how much I love the rain!
I remember as a child and as a teenager
Sleeping to most peaceful sleep when it rained!
I loved hearing it on my window and on the roof!
What great memories!
As an adult I loved being able to sit in front
Of the fire and cuddle up with a good book underneath
a thick blanket! It's the best!

Now I love being able to smell the rain, feel it
against my skin, taste it (yeah I know) jumping
in a puddle like a kid ...

Well can I tell you I have the silliest students
ever! Thu truly make me smile! We all wear our
rain boots when it rains now and instead of telling the
kids not to splash in the puddles because they find them
all big or small it doesn't matter they find them! We
Walk through the. And we swoosh through them and we talk
about the sounds that a swoosh makes and we laugh as
as we try to make the sound!

See being able to feel the rain is a blessing!
Being able to run through a puddle is another!

I could have allowed the weather to keep me
down and defeated this morning but I didn't!
I chose to embrace the day! To embrace the smiles!
I chose to get up from my bed and not let the aches and
pains that accompany rheumatoid arthritis keep me
down or defeated! I chose to jump in a puddle!

What a great day to love the rain!

Until next time please continue to pray for me and I will pray for you!
Jump in the puddles! Smile a little!
Enjoy life as it comes! Love the rain!

Tricky Thursday

Good Evening

Today I was given the opportunity of being Principal for the day ...
Oh my goodness!... crazy are the issues of elementary school!
To say the least this is what I had to deal with for today:

1. a student that stated to another student you either leave this country or I will bring a gun to school and kill you! (first grade)

2. another student throwing papers in the classroom at another student! (sixth grade)

3. another student being disrespectful to the teacher and continued to make fun of the teacher in class during class (fifth grade)

4. then there were four other students... girls! that were enrolled in drama issues....she said...she said...she said...she said some more.... (third grade)

5.  then another student was not picked up by her mom until two hours after school was over!!!! Really! And the student hee hee hee told her mom, "hey that lady said this is not a babysitting service here in the office!" ha ha ha ha....(I'm the lady)

6.  A parent came in at the end of the day to state that her son was being picked on by two students (I get to deal with that first thing in the morning)

7.  Younger students being bullied by upper graders in the after school program....that I get to deal with tomorrow afternoon!

8. My class was truly great today! Yeah! love those little guys!....

I get to be principal all over again tomorrow! Woot! Woot!

To God be the Glory!

Can I tell you that God is so good because through it all I get to minister to these children in a way that is acceptable in the Public school system....Thank you God

The RA at least was under control for today...could be because I was so busy keeping up with such a great group of kids...

Well until the next time please continue to pray for me and for all students...and I will continue to pray for you!

God Bless!
